When The Going Gets Tough

Poem By Gloraly Gomez

I'm climbing a mountain that no one can see
I'm climbing and climbing but can't see the peak

I'm reaching much higher than I usually do
I think I should slow down but I'm not going to

My body is tired and I need to rest
But my eagerness wants me to finish this quest

The sharp rocks that cut me will not make me stop
I will keep on trying until I reach the top

A storm forms around me and surrounds me with rain
I see my hands bleeding and start to feel pain

I slip and fall down to the crevasse below
My rope breaks, my will goes, and time becomes slow

I refuse to give up, I had made it so far
With the last of my strength, I reach for the stars

I pull myself up and adjust all my stuff
I look at the distance and say, 'When the going gets tough...'

</>If you are tired of life and want to quit,
There are many ways to do it...

Cut yourself and bleed to death


</>Ever since I met you
You've turned my world
Upside down
And inside out


</>The rain helps me forget the pain
That you have left me with today
And as it hits my window pane
It slowly, but surely fades away

Grim Night

</>Shadows dancing on the wall
As souls are filled with dark demands
Demons making your skin crawl
Saying, 'Let the show begin! '


Cast on irons
Locked in chains
Lusting after
hellish games
